Fantasy Bargains and Busts: National League Pitchers

3

Mike Gianella

A look at which senior-circuit arms proved worthy of their owners' fantasy investment and which came up short.

This is a continuation of my series on Rotisserie-style valuations from last year, with a look back at what happened, as well as my take on how this information may or may not impact what happens in 2014.

Before I get started, here is a brief explanation of the data you will see in the charts below.

Fantasy Bargains and Busts: National League Hitters

Mike Gianella

A look at which senior-circuit bats lived up to their fantasy price tags this past season, and which ones disappointed their owners.

Welcome back to my series on retrospective, Rotisserie-style player valuation. Before the holiday break, I tackled the American League. Today I’ll look at the hitters in the National League.

The $ value column is based on my Rotisserie-style, 5x5 formulas. It doesn’t exactly match anything in Baseball Prospectus’ PFM, but is derived using a SGP valuation model (something the PFM does offer when it is up and running). The most important thing to know about the values is that for the 168 best perceived American League hitters and the 108 best perceived American pitchers on Opening Day 2013 the values add up to $3,120. This is important, as this is where the next two columns come into play.

A look back at the junior circuit arms who rewarded their fantasy owners and those who cost them last season.

On Tuesday, I took a look back at American League hitters from a Rotisserie valuation standpoint. Today, I’ll tackle the pitchers in the Junior Circuit.

Before I get started, here is a brief explanation of the data you will see in the charts below.

A look back at the junior circuit bats who rewarded their fantasy owners and those who cost them last season.

Why look back?

This question is typically asked in philosophical or self help circles, with the answer typically being that we should never look back and should always focus on what lies ahead, not behind. Generally speaking, this isn’t bad advice. If you get too bogged down in what happened yesterday, you’ll miss out on opportunities in the present.
